A visually stunning effect which is a mix of diminishing cards meets vanishing pack. People simply won't believe their eyes as card after card visually melts away into nothing. Reduction is another visually clear effect from Nicholas Lawrence. Oh, and did we mention visual? Magic this eye-popingly unbelievable is such a thrill to perform.
Every now and then, a principle is discovered that changes what is possible with an effect. Reduction is a revolutionizing approach to achieving a classic plot in magic. From the mind of Nicholas Lawrence, a devious method was invented to perform a visual diminishing effect with no gimmick at all.
Imagine pulling a deck of cards out the box and leaving it on the table. You have a spectator select a suit. As you place your fingers on top of the deck and gently rub the cards, the thickness of the deck slowly gets thinner and thinner. You immediately spread the remaining cards to show all the suits have vanished except for the chosen suit. A visual mystery which is simple and powerful.
